NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – It’s not something you see in Walmart every day.
A baby was born inside an upstate Walmart store Thursday.
Nathalie Saona went into labor around 8 p.m. at the big box store in the town of Wallkill, which is 65 miles north of New York City.
She was shopping for her baby — which was due on March 17 — when the birthday suddenly advanced.
“And my sister said, ‘What if I had a Walmart baby?’” Saona said. “I don’t think so. She jinxed it — it just happened.”
“The baby was pushing. I couldn’t wait…I was scared,” Saona told CBS 2′s Steve Langford.
A number of people gathered to help deliver the baby inside the store, including a stranger named “Richard” and an assistant manager.
The ambulance crew said Saona gave birth on a bench in the pharmacy department, Langford reported.
Saona called the 6-pound, 6-ounce baby, named Kourtney, her miracle baby.
